Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly has urged the club to go for Crystal Palace star Jordan Ayew.

The ex Blue believes that Ayew is a good player, and that a move to Chelsea can help bring the best out of him.

“It’s time for him [to step up],” Desailly, who spent six years at Chelsea between 1998 and 2004, told FootballmadeinGhana.

“He’s 28-years-old now and he has reached a very high level, as well as being quite consistent in his performances.

“We need him to have more hunger. We want him to become a killer.

“You can see in his face that he is not really a killer, but he is showing great ability, and being at Chelsea can bring him to the level that we all know that he can get to because he is a very good player.”

Ayew has enjoyed his most productive campaign in English football, with 9 goals in 30 appearances for Crystal Palace in the Premier League this season. However, we don’t think the Ghana international is anything close to the calibre of players Chelsea want to sign.
